Product Description

Amazon.ca

Whilst one suspects some kind of pre-millennial hysteria prompted Q magazine's readers to vote OK Computer The Greatest Album Ever Made scarcely five months after its release, it certainly doesn't look stupid up there in the pantheon. Following the hot red rock attack of 1995's The Bends, OK Computer heads out into the cold deep space of prog-rock and comes back with stuff that makes mere pop earthlings like Stereophonics tremble. Whilst the eight-minute-long "Paranoid Android" comes across like "Bohemian Rhapsody" with a gun held to its head, and "Electioneering" is a little too like a kiddy-version of Blood And Chocolate-era Elvis Costello to be truly revelatory, the rest of OK Computer spans the sublime to the ridiculously sublime. Thom Yorke had been obsessed with Ennio Morricone during the recording of the album (in a haunted mansion, fact-fans), and it shows on the expansive space-dream of "Subterranean Homesick Alien" and the endlessly comforting closer "The Tourist". And if neither "No Surprises" (played on a toy guitar with Yorke and Ed O'Brien harmonising like a two-man Crowded House) nor "Lucky" (recorded in one day for the Bosnian aid album War Child--it reduced Yorke to tears the first time he heard it played back) make the hairs on your skin spit with electricity, then maybe you're with the Q reader who voted for Anita by Anita Dobson. --Caitlin Moran

5.0 out of 5 stars One word - BRILLIANT! Dec 26 2006
By sun
Format:Audio CD
I know everyone has said this a million times already, but this album really was ahead of its time. I only just bought it, 10 years too late it seems becuase I can't beleive what I've been missing this entire time.

I'm partially writing this review so that the person with the review below me, Vader, won't be the first review you see. It seems he had gone to every single radiohead album and given it a bad review, and with nothing much to back up his opinon. Sure, this album isn't for everyone and if he doesn't like it, fine but a smart, intuitive, musically inclined person can see that these guys have a knack for writing atmospheric and captiving songs. Another review said that all drugs should be pulled from the market and people should just listen to this album. He's right. This album takes you to another world and you'll find yourself wanting more. I can't wait to hear what else Radiohead has to offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top 5 albums ever made Feb. 13 2006
Format:Audio CD
I've noticed that a lot of people's arguments are along the lines of "good but no The Bends"; this opinion is flawed at best. There are you two reasons people prefer The Bends to Ok Computer. The first is that the Bends is far more accessible, you pop it in and BAM, and you're hooked. As opposed OK which requires multiple listens before you can even start comprehend its brilliance. And the second is that the Bends, although Beautifully written lacks an overall concept, IE requires less thinking or interpretation of what ones hearing. As OK computer successfully expresses Radiohead's worry that we are becoming less human and more mechanical everyday, through the media and our desire to fit in to a society that is controlled by corporations dominated by greed and exploitation. How Radiohead pulled this off without sounding pretentious, I will never know.

Sound quality was good, but the level of background noise was unacceptable for a brand new LP. No other major issues, but the background noise certainly takes away from the overall experience. Amazing album though.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece Sept. 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
Arguably their best album, Radiohead's "OK Computer" is without a doubt one of the finest albums of the 90's. The album's theme, the de-humanization of man through the evolution of machines, doesn't make the album any more accessible (it is all the more depressing to a point), but that's a good thing. This isn't the accessible Radiohead that's been heard on the band's debut "Pablo Honey" or even on "The Bends"; this is an album that you can't achieve full listening pleasure from just by listening to one song, only when you listen to "OK Computer" from beginning to end can you fully appreciate the musicianship, complexity, and overall greatness of this fantastic album. Standout tracks include "Airbag", "Exit Music (For a Film)", "Karma Police", and "Lucky", and as great as those songs are, the entire album in itself is a modern day masterpiece and one of the absolute greatest albums of the 90's.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crisp Oct. 22 2001
Format:Audio CD
OK Computer is one of the best albums of the 90s as most listeners and critics tend to agree; because of the impact that it had when it was released in 1997. Seems as if they had been building up the sound in previous albums and released that sound at full magnum on OK Computer. Radiohead's sound captures the modern age (clean guitars, ufo like keyboards) and compliments their themes: alienation, isolation, control, society's many problems.
Thom Yorke's voice is at its most effective, multi-tracking, soaring, the choir boy with an oppresed soul and his lyrics work with minimalistic defined depression. All the songs are of high quality and I especially like Subterranean Homesick Alien because of the effects and Electioneering for its power.
Something has got to be said about Radiohead's use of artwork for their albums. Machinery, motorways and cold colors grace OK Computer but, in general, the point of each of their albums is highlighted by the artwork.
